With the UK General Election less than a month away The Blue Coat School Politics Department are putting the finishing touches to a programme of events that will take place in the run up to the national election on Thursday 7th May. Blue Coat students have volunteered to represent each of the main political parties; making campaign materials to distribute around the School to canvas their fellow students. The series will culminate with Blue Coat students casting their vote in ‘The Blue Coat School Mock General Election’.
Head of Politics Mr Croxton hopes “these activities will help to raise awareness and encourage participation in politics”.
